About DS Tayman 12 Year Old Caol Ila 2008 Second Edition
The Caol Ila Second Edition is a 12-year-old single malt Scotch that comes from the Caol Ila distillery. Known to be less smoky than its Islay neighbors, the distillery employs different mashing and fermenting practices as well as stills, producing fruitier single malts that are a great entry point into the world of peated whisky, as well as suiting palates that prefer their peat notes on the subtle side. This 12-year-old whisky was distilled in 2008, aged in ex-bourbon casks, then finished in casks from the Israeli Flam Winery. Bottled at 92 proof, it's a complex dram with coffee, chocolate, brine, smoke, and fruity notes.

About DS Tayman
With nearly 2 decades of experience in the industry, Danny Saltman decided it was time to create a new single malt Scotch whisky brand. This is how the independent bottler DS Tayman came to be. The brand is focused on seeking out single casks, meaning that each release is super limited. With exceptional casks hand-chosen from remote places of Scotland, they aim to bring unique whisky to the market, selecting the spirits based on unique appearance, smell, and flavor. Each aged whisky then gets a round of finishing in carefully selected wine or port casks.
Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
